Let’s start with the fun ones first shall we:

1.      Which super power would you like to have?

Telekinesis – I dream about it all the time and I’m always disappointed when I wake up and its not real.  

2.     If you were a brick in the wall which brick would you be?

I would be on the bottom, helping to support the ones above me.

3.     Tell me about the worst boss you ever had.

I honestly never had a bad boss. I own my own business now ( in addition to writing) and when I was younger I had a really awesome boss who to this day supports my creative endeavors. I always go back to my old office for book signings. 

4.     If you were to turn into a fish right now, what would you do?

I’d go out in search of Atlantis. 

5.     If you were a t-shirt what colour would you be and why?

I would be green because its the color of new life.
How about some word association:

1.                   Fish – Sushi

2.                   LaughterJoy

3.                   Bowler hat – Grandfather

4.                   Chocolate –Wine

5.                   Wine – Glass

Now lets get serious:

1.                   How do you react to a bad review of one of your books?

After I scream and throw things for awhile, I go back and read it again, and I use the criticism to held improve my work in the future.


2.                   Do you ever wish that you had an entirely uncreative job?

I used to sell insurance and you can’t get any less creative than that. I love what I do now and hope I can continue for many years to come. 


3.                   Who is your biggest inspiration?

Christopher Pike. He was my favorite author as a teenager and inspired me to become a young adult author. 


4.                   What are the most important attributes to remaining a sane writer?

Quiet! I wish I had a little more of it, but with four kids, I’ve learned to drown it out when I have to. .

5.                   How much impact does your childhood have on your writing?

My childhood, at least my teenage years, impacts my work a lot. I always go back to those days when I need to put myself in the head of a teenager. Many of my characters are old school mates and I almost always give one of my old teachers a cameo appearance.
